Artful Dodge Discussion

i like it... id say Tainted Strike is a bit weak/redundant and would suggest Artful Dodge or Tragic Slip or Vapor Snag or even Spell Pierce

I highly recommend Jace's Phantasm along with Glimpse the Unthinkable for potentially swinging for 5 in the air on T2. Artful Dodge is great evasion and Trepanation Blade can be fun. Also recommend Extirpate/Surgical Extraction.

I have a primer on my page for Modern Dimir Mill if you are interested/want more ideas.

I think Artful Dodge would be really good in this deck because it makes it easier to get damage in and you can safely discard it to Tolarian Winds.

Thanks for suggestions! Monastery Mentor is probably out of my budget right now, but I would slam dunk him to this deck if I had one.

I actually had Aetherflux Reservoir in this deck, but personally I grew tired of it because it was in nearly every deck in my playgroup back then. My friend once died to it four times in a row in a single day. ;)

Im not sure how I missed Rootborn Defenses (as I'm always mad at Artful Dodge not being an instant). And Myriad Landscape because I put it in nearly all my 2 color decks. But ramp actually feels okay in this deck, I have no problems casting my pricier spells, so I would probably put Wayfarer's Bauble only to replace other, worse ramp spell.

I'm a bit torn on cantrips. Sure, Brainstorm is hell of a card, and its a great spell either if your situation is bad or good. But I feel that some Divination-like cards like Compulsive Research may not be as good as a cantrip when on you are on topdeck, their ceiling is much, much higher in a deck when you can consistently cast it again for free. I actually changed Cultural Exchange for Fact or Fiction recently, but I was too lazy to update the deck here too. ;)

Maybe I should experiment and try how this deck would work if I replaced all those draw cards with cantrips.

I don't really see the point of Rhonas the Indomitable in this deck? You have only 10 other creatures and none of them have the 4 power required.

Sarkhan Unbroken is just there for the card and the mana? I'm sure you can find a better card that does the same with better effects or mana cost...

Tracker's Instincts. Why? You only have 11 creatures!!

The flashback costs are extremely expensive and I see what you mean by using Increasing Confusion and Artful Dodge but that's weird because I only see two Increasing Confusion's...

Have you looked at any other decks with the same ideas as this (monocolored or two colored or three colored) to get some card suggestions? I think that would be a good idea because there are a lot of cards that confuse me.

I'm new to this whole feedback thing so take this with a grain of salt but I'm just confused as to how your deck works if its based around a few things that are either really mana-expensive, contradictory with other cards or not focused on enough in your deck.

If this is a flashback deck then I would consider looking at other flashback decks for ideas. That's what this looks like to me. Good luck!

I considered him, but I found that most cases when its ability would trigger in this deck would also result in creature dead, exiled or in owner's hand. This makes Path to Exile even better, but nonbos hard with Fractured Identity. There are some three repeatable options - Will Kenrith (the best one actually), Niblis of Frost, Mother of Runes and seven nonrepeatable - Mirrorpool, Artful Dodge, Rite of Replication, Saheeli's Artistry, Slip Through Space, Stolen Identity and Valorous Stance. But I usually use Artful Dodge, Slip Through Space, Valorous Stance and Mother of Runes to protect Taigam and enable the deck.

It's a very good card and feels like an auto include in this strategy, but in this particular deck it works with only 10 cards, 4 of which I will probably use on different occasion. In case i dont have any of those 10 cards in hand, it will be a 5 mana dead card. I dont think it's worth it right now, but I'll add it to maybeboard. My decks change a lot over time, so maybe it will become better later. :) Thanks for the suggestion, though!
